I thoroughly enjoyed this film, and what a looker Jack Benny was in those days. His great voice and demeanor were very appealing. In the bit where they're sitting on the log, you can see the contrast of his skin tone of his hands which was tanned next to the panstick white of his face, and in one close up you could see he wore stage lipstick as male actors did back then. For the time I think it was a good story, can imagine my old dad who was 13 then, going to see this movie.
